Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 44,583,000, with more than 1,175,000 deaths and 30,089,000 recoveries.

Worldwide, total confirmed cases and total deaths continue to rise.

This is primarily driven by increasing trends observed in Latin America, North America, and South Asia.

More specifically, the US, Brazil, and India contribute over 50% of the global confirmed case burden, and nearly 45% of deaths to the global death toll.

In Taiwan, today marks a significant milestone of 200 days without local transmission of the coronavirus.

As cases surge in other parts of the world, this highlights the country’s success in keeping the virus under control.
